When to go
The hotel closes from mid May to mid September. Early summer (Mid October to November) can be lovely, and in late summer and autumn (March) the colors are stunning. But if you’re planning to go riding in the open steppes, midsummer is wonderful. The peak summer months of January and February can get busy in the nearby Torres del Paine National Park and it is also the windiest time of year. At any time of year Patagonia is unpredictable. People will often tell you to expect all seasons in a single day.
